Tracy Pfeifer MD, MS
About the Practice
I am a board certified plastic surgeon dedicated to natural results cosmetic surgery, patient safety and patient education. I chose to practice plastic surgery because it appeals to my perfectionist nature, is a creative process and affords the opportunity for a physician-patient experience that is unique in medicine. My special expertise and love is plastic surgery of the breast and abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck). I completed specialized fellowship training in plastic surgery of the breast and continue to specialize in breast surgery. As a breast specialist, I perform both relatively straightforward as well as complex cosmetic breast surgery, including challenging breast revision surgeries. I believe in patient education and personalized care, enjoy an open dialogue with my patients, and create a warm, supportive atmosphere for my patients. Cosmetic surgery is elective and I believe that patients must be fully informed about their procedures and their choices. I am known for a lengthy consultative process so that these goals can be realized. I am committed to surgical refinement, customer service and beautiful results. I derive great satisfaction from meeting my patients’ expectations and helping my patients reach their goals. As a proponent of beautiful, natural results plastic surgery, my motto is “Did she or didn’t she”.
